Feeling Good or Not, It Does Not Matter

Whether you're at the top of your game or not, motherhood is 24/7. Have you had one of those days where you wish you can stay in bed for an hour more? I felt that way today. It does not matter that I had 7 hours of sleep which is more than enough for me on a good day. Today, everything in my body seems to be off. My eyelids are heavy and my body aches. All that does not matter if you are a mom like me. Kids still need to go to school so I had to prepare breakfast and get them ready.

This is one of those rare time that I wish I have a helper. I grew up in a household with helpers. My mom works outside of the home so it is very convenient for her. I have some helpers here: the dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer. Thank goodness for these appliances. :o)

So I'm off to drop the kids to school. I hope I feel better soon. It's no fun being sick especially if you are a mother.

I heard you loud and clear ;-) A mom's schedule is dependent on our kid's schedule. You must be flexible and can strike anywhere. I realized that in the Philippines we learned how to live, in US we learned how to survive, LOL.

Thank you all for your comments. Any mom is a super mom right? We still trudge on even if our body says "No". I feel much better but I think I still have not caught up in my sleep. Weird. Probably because I have been sleeping late last Christmas holidays. LOL Have a nice day everyone!
